So a passenger jumps out of seat and saves the day on that failed bombing and the glorious TSA puts in rules to require people to stay in their seats?
Is it just me or is this true insanity?

Sounds about right...that is why I am reverting back to the age old tradition of road trips. I can bring whatever I want, eat whatever I want, go to the bathroom whenever and not be told silly things like stay in your seat.

and unless you are going a very far distance is probably worth the extra time and a lil more cash not to have to be dehumanized...

Apparently because someone ruined their 12/25 scheme, there needs to be rules to allow "terrorist" attacks so that we can stay afraid, among the most crucial times (healthcare, copenhagen).

I hear you, but thats a bit hard to do if you need to go across 'the pond'. My last air trip (several years ago) I avoided an American flag carrier and US airspace, it was almost tolerable. I shudder to think what US flights are like,

Won't be long before everybody has to be bound and shackled while flying.

Portable potties under every seat.

I'll be flying again in two weeks

This last trip was fine (9 days ago), before the "Ter attack", 15 minutes from curb to seat

Is it just me or was the failed "attack" rather _______ on many levels?

I shall see and report back after my next trip

Since this guy attempted to blow the airplane up while in his seat, what good
does it do to keep passengers in their seat? Maybe it's better if everyone
is forced to stand up with their hands up against the carry-on luggage
compartments during the entire flight. Or even better, put each passenger
in a straight jacket the moment they sit down on the plane before take off.

Seriously, I thought there were super high-tech bomb detection gateways
for each passenger to walk through just before the TSA check at the airports.
I walk through arches that look way more sophisticated than mere metal
detectors at the major airports. Perhaps they don't have these at the
Nigeria airports though. From what I understand, the suspect boarded the
flight in Nigeria and didn't go through any security checks in Amsterdam
before departing for Detroit, because passengers merely transferred from
one plane to another at that airport.

I'm sorry but if I have to shake a piss I'm getting up and using the bathroom versus pissing my pants. If the flight attendant wants to follow me in go ahead. The doctor says I shouldn't lift anything heavy anyways.

What is this world coming to.

our gov't didn't count on their latest mission to fail. that guy was not suppose to save the day. they were suppose to succeed and poor innocent people were suppose to die. so, after a failure they are putting in regulations to stop people from stopping them.

Everyone used to say flying was the safest form of travel.

I don't believe that, and it is a total pain.

Bring back trains (the best unless you are going overseas), buses - great, and cars. If you are going overseas, take a boat.

He wasn't just trying to kill the plane passengers either. The timing was
such that the plane would blow up while flying over the populated Detroit
metro area near final approach.

Also, regarding the new rules for not leaving your seat during the last hour
of a flight, that's when you usually have to go to the bathroom on these
international flights. The stewardesses give you food and drink midway
through the flight and lots of people have to "relieve" themselves in the
last hour. Would you do #1 or #2 on yourself in the seat, or make a mad
dash for the restroom before anyone can stop you? The answer SOUNDS
easy, but imagine yourself with that feeling of having to go badly. What
would you do, ATS members?

So, essentially, what you're telling me, is that this absolutely ruins my chances of getting into the Mile High Club...right?

Well, that could be construed as "mixing chemicals"



I think that the TSA needs to tell people if someone is trying something to beat the living piss out of them. That will keep everyone on their Ps and Qs.

'Mixing chemicals'...ha! Good one.
Honestly, most of the TSA personnel I've dealt with are a bunch of jerks who think they're so damn smart and important it just turns my stomach.

Ah well the utility of my time is not as important as the utility of my sanity. As is, I do not travel abroad much, so making a trip from California to Idaho or New Mexico is not such a big deal

Sure it is extra time and really not that much more than flying to the destinations I seek to go......why not

It is enjoyable, I have one on one time with the chillins. They get to experience the great wide roads.

Saw this on the news at work, I was pissed off and none of my coworkers could understand why...

One man failing, or even succeeding in his plot should not be reason to infringe upon my liberties..."so what you just want them to blow us up?" my boss asked...

I'm getting so damn tired of this 'Us and them' mentality.
It's pathetic, small-minded and is exactly what's wrong with this country.
There was a time when 'revolution' was a positive thing...
